  • Given that (a) the offender is a health care provider and (b) the offense occurs while the victim is receiving professional treatment, the offender engages in sexual penetration with a person who the offender knows is uninformed that a sexual act is being performed.

What are the punishments for this crime?

First-time felony convictions are as follows:

An offender faces 30 to 40 years in jail for a second conviction of a crime (if the first offense was not a sexual offense).

  • If a person is convicted of a second felony after a sexual offense, they might face 35 to 45 years in jail.

  • If the previous two felonies were not sexual offenses or the most serious felonies, the punishment for a third conviction ranges from 40 to 60 years in prison.

  • If a person is convicted of a third felony and the first two were not the most serious felonies or sexual offenses, they face 99 years in jail.
